The causes of back pain can be wide-ranging. Often, back pain is caused by a lack of exercise or an unhealthy posture. When sitting for long periods of time, such as at work, we unconsciously assume an unhealthy posture – tilting our pelvis, creating a rounded back and dropping our shoulders forward. In the long run, this manner of sitting shortens certain muscles such as the hip flexors and the chest muscles, and our core muscles slowly deteriorate. In addition to poor physical posture and lack of exercise, psychological strain and stress are also common causes of back pain.
Be active instead of passive
Physical pain limits our mobility, but being passive in these situations can make the pain progressively worse. Regular exercise helps strengthen your core muscles, mobilizes fascia and stretches shortened back muscles in an efficient way. This is how you can improve and prevent back pain.
Good reasons to exercise with the bellicon mini-trampoline:
Strengthen core muscles
Regular back exercises on the bellicon mini-trampoline will holistically strengthen your muscles. Its vibrations will properly lubricate your intervertebral discs and prevent back pain and tension.
Campaign for Healthier Backs (AGR e.V.)
The Campaign for Healthier Backs is a non-profit association that issues a seal of quality to products that are particularly easy on the back, based on strict test criteria. The bellicon mini-trampoline's unique bungee suspension system convinced both medical and therapeutic experts of its exceptional qualities, making it the only mini-trampoline ever to receive this award. Rebounding exercise on the bellicon is demonstrably effective while being gentle on back muscles, intervertebral discs and the spine.
Proven by studies
Researchers at the University of Ghent found that even light bouncing on a mini-trampoline reduces strain on the spine and, at the same time, significantly strengthens the (lower) core back muscles. It is also less risky than other forms of exercise and training.
Standing straight and pain-free – that’s what makes everyday life enjoyable.
Individuals who suffer from severe back pain, however, tend to shy away from exercise. They are afraid of aggravating the pain and continue to sit in bad postures, causing their muscles to tighten even more by staying still. At first, it’s enough to simply bounce lightly on the bellicon so that the body gets used to the movement. Over time, you can continue with specific exercises and workouts to help you say goodbye to your back pain.
Just 10 minutes a day will improve your well-being and fitness level in the long run.
